Whenever I cook this creamy dish, I’m on alert to make sure my husband doesn’t nibble before I bring it to the table. I chide him, but really, who could resist the aroma or the golden crust bubbling to the top? —Amy Wheeler, Baltimore, Maryland
This recipe has evolved over the past 8 years. After I added the thyme, ham and sour cream, my husband declared, “This is it!” I like to serve this rich, saucy entree with a salad and homemade French bread. —Hope Toole, Muscle Shoals, Alabama
I'm a home health nurse and got this recipe from one of my elderly clients, who had used it for years. Now, it's one of my family's favorites. It will never curdle, thanks to the secret ingredient of powdered nondairy creamer. —Kathy M Johnson, Lake City, South Dakota
One of my mother's favorite dishes, this recipe always brings back fond memories of her when I prepare it. It's a terrific use of leftover ham from a holiday dinner. Our five grandchildren are my favorite interest outside the kitchen!
I work at a local hospital and also part time for some area doctors, so I'm always on the lookout for good, quick recipes to fix for my family. Some of my co-workers and I exchange recipes. This zippy casserole is one that was brought to a picnic at my house. People raved over it.

One bite of these tender pork chops smothered in a creamy sauce and we could taste the care Mother put into her cooking. She was happy to share the recipe with guests who requested it after trying this delicious dish at our house.

Cauliflower replaces the potatoes in this comforting casserole, which I’ve been making for 30 years. Whenever we have leftover ham, my husband asks me to make this dish. —Sue Herlund, White Bear Lake, Minnesota
